A Word from the Editors 

ITH this issue the Agnes Scott "Annual" again makes its appear- 
ance after an intermission of two years. In some respects, how- 
ever, this is not a continuance of the former one. In the first 
place it has be-en more decidedly a private enterprise of the stir- 
dents. The entire responsibility has rested upon them. Then a new name 
graces our volume. When the former "Annual" was discontinued, its title, 
"Aurora," was bequeathed to the monthly publication of the two societies. 

The new name appealed to us as peculiarly fitting, since it has been 
our aim to cast upon these pages a silhouette, as it were, of our life at 
Agnes Scott — an existence itself as transient and flitting as firelight shadows. 
It is merely an outline that we have tried to present, but we trust we have 
done it well enough, dear reader, to bring before you the whole picture. 
And we beg your kind indulgence. We have done our best. 

The compilation of this volume has been a pleasure to us, for we hoped 
that it would contribute not only to our own enjoyment, but to that of 
others also. And if, perchance, there be anything included between these 
covers that may disclose the oddities and eccentricities of any of our fellows 
let it be remembered that it has been done with the kind intention of giving 
as true an idea as possible of the people and events that go to make the 
history of our year just past. "All history is but the biography of great 
men." We hope that our "great men" will not have any cause to say, 
after reading the "Silhouette," "Blessed are the people whose annals are 
vacant." 

And now we would thank all those who have in any way been of service 
to us. Especially are the business managers indebted to Dr. Arbuckle for 
his constant aid and advice. The editors are under obligations to Miss Lytle, 
Miss McKinney, and Miss Louise Ivcwis for many helpful suggestions.

WEST LAWN COTTAGE. 



Retrospective 




GLIMPSE of tlie Twentieth Century Agnes Scott is a revelation 
to the A. S. I. girl of ten years ago. The enlarged grounds, the 
additional buildings and equipments, the extended curriculum, the 
increased faculty — these make her wonder, admire, rejoice. A 
jear of unusual prosperity — for so we have the pleasure of characterizing 
the 5'ear that is fast making a page in the history of Agnes Scott — always 
brings to those interested in the success of an enterprise a desire to look back 
over its history, that they may take encouragement and kindle enthusiasm 

13 



by noting great results growing from small beginnings. A glance at the 
twelve 3'ears' history of Agnes Scott will show grounds for bright hopes 
for the future. 

The power of a dormant idea is illustrated in the very beginning of 
the Institute. Though Agnes Scott is of recent organization, the idea of a 
Presbyterian school for girls was discussed in the Synod of Georgia as early 
as 1845, and it is said on good authority, that Decatur and the present site 
of the Institute were selected as in every way desirable for such a school. 
For the time, the idea bore no fruit ; but, after lying dormant for two 
decades, it brought forth a bud of promise. In 1889, Dr. F. H. Gaines, Col. 
G. W. Scott, Milton A. Candler, J. W. Kirkpatrick, Hiram Williams and 
others, met and took steps for the organization of the Decatur Female Semi- 
nary. In a rented frame building the school began its career with four 
teachers and an enrollment of sixty pupils, all from Georgia. 

But the geuerosit)^ of one of its founders was not to suffer the usefulness 
of this institution to be limited by poor equipments. In September, iSgi, 
Col. Geo. W. Scott, of Decatur, had built and equipped at a cost of $112,500, 
a handsome brick building which, with the engine house and laundry, at 
that time constituted the sole buildings on the campus. The steadily grow- 
ing reputation of the Institute, however, soon increased the patronage, and 
the need for more room became imperative. Agnes Scott spread beyond the 
"Blue Line," as the old Consolidated Electric Car Line was called by the 
Institute people. On the east side of the Institute may now be seen a block 
of buildings belonging to the school. 

Southeast of the main building is the President's house. This com- 
fortable two-story building, with its shady, well-kept lawn and artistic flower- 
beds, is the home of Dr. F. H. Gaines. Here, on certain happy occasions, 
the hearts of faculty — and sometimes even of seniors — are gladdened by the 
hospitality of this home. In neighborly proximity stands the little green 
cottage with its white furnishings — its muslin curtains and white iron beds. 
This is the realm of our trained nurse, whose cheery presence and skillful 
care rob the Infirmary of many of its terrors. 

Beyond the Infirmary is — or rather, sad change, zuas — the cottage, the 
two-story frame building that furnished shelter for teachers and girls after 
the first overflow from the Institute proper. The site of the cottage is now 



marked by two lone chimneys and a few scattered bricks ; for on Friday, 
December 21, in spite of heroic efforts to save it, the cottage burned to the 
ground. Memorable day ! A day that has been found convenient as the 
date of numerous jokes at the expense of unsuspecting and distressed persons. 
Since the burning of the cottage, the homeless teachers and girls have been 
moved to the large white house just below their former quarters. 

The most recent, and perhaps the most welcome addition to the Insti- 
tute property, came to us at the close of last session through the liberality 
of Mr. S. M. Inman and Mrs. Josephine Abbott, both of Atlanta. Theirs 
are names that have long been prominent in benevolent causes, and we 
believe that they could not have bestowed their gifts where they are more 
needed or more sincerely appreciated. Using the ten thousand dollars placed 
at their disposal, the Board of Trustees purchased the property adjoining 
the Institute on the west. The property was improved and the house fur- 
nished, thus providing for the accommodation of the increased number of 
applicants. "West Lawn," as this last gift has been nained, adds greatly 
to the appearance of the campus, and already it has become a favorite spot 
to many of the '02 girls. 

In every way Agnes Scott is growing ; in consequence, there are new 
needs to be met each year. As long as these needs are met by the earnest 
efforts of the past years, we may expect this growth to continue. There 
are still crying needs — a new chapel, a separate building for a library, an 
increased number of volumes in our library. L,et those of us who are most 
interested in our Alma Mater not rest content until we have these things, 
too, and have made ourselves useful in placing Agnes Scott in the forefront 
of Southern educational institutions.

Aquarius, the water-bearer, is responsib'e for her 
faults and virtues. She is extremely indolent and 
needs thorough training in the art of punctuality. 
She may make biting little remarks sometimes, 
but don't take them seriously, for at heart she 
does not mean it at all. 



ANNA MAY STEVENS, Atlanta, Ga. 

Vice-President Senior Class; Treasurer Junior 
Class. 

The sign of Virgo, the Virgin, pres'des over her 
destinies. She has dark hair (?) and complexion. 
She is haughty and proud, reasons from external- 
ities, and has a fondness for sweetmeats. She is 
magnetic, but not demonstrative ; is apt to talk too 
much, and should be taught the value of silence.

The constellation of Leo presides over her desti- 
nies. She is ihe lion of the tribe She has a fine 
sensative, shrinking nature, which needs a strong 
guiding hand. She is a great imitator and is 
somewhat lacking in individuahty (?) but she has 
high ideals, is generous and magnetic.

Pier astrological sign is Aquarius, the water-bearer 
She is both strong and weak ; she is rarely gif ed. 
but is lazy She needs to be taught the art ol 
punctualilv and the necessity of keeping promises. 
She is often pleasing and as often cruel. But her 
unkind cuts come from the head, rather thin ihe 
heait.

President Junior Class ; President Senior Class. 
Alumna; Editor " Ainvra" 1901-1902. 

The conste'lation of Libra, the scales, was in ihe 
ascendency at her birth. Hence, she is energetic, 
ambitious and very high-strung and quick tem- 
pered. Still she is true and good, and can be rea- 
soned with, (an excellent thing in woman.) In an 
inventive way she is a genius, but this trait in her 
must be developed by slow degrees, else the spark 
will be quenched by its own brilliancy.

History of the Class of 1902 



By Mr. Dooly (?) 




HAN 111' liou'ra^-ble iditers iv tli' Silhouette infir-nned 
me iv til' gra-at pairt Oi was ixpicted t' coiithribute t' 
tliayer aimooal me hairt failed me. But aftlier tlioiukiii' 
it ovlier Oi scratched me haid 'ii' called t' me iniud 
til' watcl;-\vur-rd iv old Payter Stuyvesint, wan iv tli' 
br-raivest sons iv Erin tliit iver set foot in th' ray- 
pooblic. Me frind, it was this, " If ye do ill' best 
3'e kin, ye do well enough." 'N' th' watcli-wur-rd iv th' beeogriphy 
iv th' Senior Class is this old motto iv me aincestor. Wan day Oi asked 
me frind Hinnissy his opinyion iv th' bisness. Says Hiunissy, "Well, in 
all me expayrieuce Oi niver coome across sooch soobject. But, me frind, 
Oi kin say this much fur-r 'im— if they er loike th' rist iv thayer sex iv th' 
praysint gineration, they thoink they er is good is anny wan ilse, 'n' faith, 
a little betther. "But Oi waived him asoid, yooung la-adies, with a floorish 
iv th' hand, 'n' resoolved t' write a hist'ry iv yer class wur-rthy iv sooch a 
soobject. 'N' may it plaise yer honers, Oi procayd t' set forr-th th' raysults 
iv me la-abors. 



In many rayspicts th' class iv nineteen hoondred 'n' two is a ra\inark- 
able wan. In the fur-rst place, they did not orginize thiinsil\-es into an 
administhrative boody till th' year whan they called thimsiKes jooniors. 
'N' Oi've been told that usooally they elict a praysidint, 'n' all th' ither ixay- 
cootive officers bayfur they be sure they will matricoolate into th' college. But 
two years bayfur this th' iditors iv th' Annooal, lookiu' ovher th' waters iv 
th' say iv Agnes Scott 'n' percayvin' th' gra-at ship iv th' Frayshmen adrift 
without pilot or captain, iinmaydiately appointed officers t' direct th' sailin' 
iv th' boat. 'N' though th' crew ignored th' ixistence iv this ixaycootive 
boody iv'ry wan ilse raycognized th' validity iv th' interfayrence iv wiser 
'n' older haids. At that toinie th' maymbers iv this class were is noomerous 
at Agnes Scott is vayhicles on Fifth Avenooe iv a sunny April mornin'. 
Nearly ivry ither wan was fraysh, 'n' Oi've no doubt that they praysinted a 
rayther green appearance. 

But after the fur-rst bombshells iv examinations struck 'im broadside 
'n' th' smoke was beginnin' t' clear away ye could see th' mayjoority iv 'im 
la-aid low, niver t' roise ag'in. Th' rist i\- 'im went braively on, loike a 
lamp on a street corner iv a rainy night — feeble 'n' flickerin', but bur-rnin 
still. 'N' whan they came back th' next year thayer were enough left, the- 
gither with fraysh raycruits, t' make up a rayspictable boo;ly ; but they 
were yet ayther too weak or too modest t' hold an eliction 'n' orginize a 
little governmiut iv thayer own. Indaid th' most distinguishing chayrac- 
teristics iv th' class iv nointeeu hoondred 'n' two are its ixtrayme modest)' 
'n' its habit iv long 'n' cair-rful deliberation prayvious t' i\Tv aict. 

Now at th' beginnin' iv this scond payriod iv its ixistence it met with 
perhaps th' gra-atest misfortune iv its loife. Having begun th' charge upon 
Biblical Notes 'n' Outlines half iv th' timid craytures were most unaccount- 
ably saized with fraight 'n' horror 'n' turned aside t' th' flayshpots iv 
Fraynch 'n' hist'ry with a small spraynklin' iv th' Ainglish tongue. This 
repulse thinned th' ranks so that thim that remained were scattered so 
so fur-r 'n' wide that each wan iv 'im niver caught sight iv anither wan fur-r 
th' rist iv th' tur-rm. Wan day a letther came t' th' class fr'm a jewelry 
istablishmint, 'n' no member iv th' class could be found. Whau Dr. Gaines 
heard iv th' praydycimint he telephoned th' city police t' sind hilp at wance. 

However, me frinds, the ra-al story iv this raymarkable class begins 
with the toinie whan they called thimsilves jooniors. Early in th' year 



they met in ixaycootive sayssion, 'n' after cair-rful 'n' critical deliberation 
succeeded in giving ivry maymber an office. (Here Oi beg laive t' offer th' 
sooggestion t' th' praysident iv th' United States that he employ these 
yoGung la-adies t' settle with ivry office-seeker who disturbs his payceful 
sojourn at th' White House.) Followin' this prodigious bur-rst iv activity 
thayer came a complete cessation iv hostilities fur'r th' purpose iv raycoo- 
peratin' th' strengh iv both th' officers 'n' th' rank 'n' file. 

Along in th' early spring toime th' jooniors were agin in ixaycootive 
sayssion. Oi'm told that th' whole commoonity held its breath in soospence 
awaiting th' final outcome. 'N' as all things airthly have an end, wan day 
it was announced unofficially that cair-rds were out soommonin' in brayf 'n 
simple wur-rds th' maymbers iv th' class iv nointeen 'n' wan t' enjy a ban- 
quet furnished fray iv charge be th' jooniors. Oi suppose it is hairdly 
naycessary t' say that ivry invitation was iccipted. Th' guests said it was 
the hair-rdest thing they iver had t' do t' wait fur-r th' gra-at ivint. 'N' 
ayven th' maymbers iv the faculty praysint agreed that a king could not 
wish fur-r betther intertainmint. But though praised on ivry soide 'n' be 
ivry wan, th' maymbers iv th' class dayported thimsilves loike sober yooung 
Amayricans. 'N' th' only fault Oi halve t' find with 'im is they be too 
quiet fur'r the raypraysintitive Amayrican. But Oi've noticed all me loife 
that th' folks in this wur-rld that get thayer names in th' papers be mostly 
raj'scals or rogues. 

The class iv nointeen hoondred 'n' two has now ra-ached th' praycipice 
iv its dignity, 'n' in a few walks it will have stepped off t' mayke room fur-r 
a yoounger gineration. 'N' befur Oi take laive iv this highly interesting 
soobject Oi wish to say fur-r it that it is a class that has from beginnin' t' 
end met th' approval iv th' praysidint, th' faculty, 'n' anny wan ilse that 
may happen t' be in authority at A. S. I. ; 'n' that is sayin' a good deal fur-r 
it. In its short life it has met the usooal vicissitoodes iv th' usooal college 
class, 'n' through all these vicissitoodes it has come with fiyin' colors ; 'n' 
that is sayin' more fur-r it. 



It was many and many a year' ago. 

In a building tall and red, 
That five little kids run to and fro — 

Freshies, it has been said. 
And these Freshies they lived with no other 
thought 

Than to frolic and play and be fed. 

Three were Crackers, and one was a Coon, 

And one was a Creeper slow. 
They were green in color, but ah I how soon 

That melted away like snow, 
For the five little Freshies older grew, 

Though they yet had far to go. 

And that was the reason at last one day. 

In that building tall and red, 
That their names were changed to Sophs, for 
they 

Were wise and blue, instead 
Of the gay little, green little Freshies of yore ; 

And they studied till each little head 
Was ready to burst with its ponderous store 

As if it were filled with lead. 

Yet bright were the days for the Crackers three. 

And the Creeper and the Coon, 
Their sole delight was at work to be 

At morn, at eve, and noon ; 
Till Ihey finally landed safe and sound 

Where Juniors stand in June. 

Now, there's never a night but you see the bri 
light 

Of the Creeper and the Coon, 
And the Crackers three in their d'gnity 

Rest not for sun or moon. 
Oh, the joyous day when they'll all be free ! 

It is coming swift and soon ; 
For Seniors now are the Crackers three. 

And the Creeper and the Coon.

Junior Class History 




JUNIOR CLASS that has never been " Fresh ! " A truly unusual 

class. During the first year of our college life, we were not an 

organized body, and so could not be properly called a Freshman 

Class. It would not be advisable for any of our readers to try to 

prove that we were ever fresh, or at least to state their proof iu the form of 

a syllogism ; for we are just logical enough to detect the fault and show 

that you are fallacious. (The chapter in logic Miss S forgot was not 

the one on syllogisms.) 

Our history as a class began in the fall of 1900, when we by our organi- 
zation aroused the first real class spirit that had ever been at Agnes Scott. 
Believing this class spirit to be an all important factor of college life, we, 
the Sophs, even condescended to beseech the little Freshmen to organize, 
so enthusiastic were we for the welfare of our college, and so ardent was 
our class spirit that some glory of it touched the hard and frozen hearts of 
the Juniors and Seniors, causing them, though late in life, to vie however 
indifferently with the Sophs in showing some love for class. 

And now as we look back from one continual struggle with Psychology, 
Trig, Astronomy, and last but not least, Dr. Gaines' Bible Notes, the mem- 
ory of Soph year is a very bright one. Our merr}- May pole dance last com- 

35 



iHencement, when "evening skies were all aglow with soft amethyst and 
gold " but expressed our life as gay, light-hearted Sophomores. 

This year, too, has had its pleasures. On Hallowe'en Night, at least, 
we forgot our dignity, and as we entertained the Sophs., enjoyed as much 
as they, and with something of our old Sophomore spirit the gypsies and 
the ghost stories. The Junior box party which Miss Hopkins gave us was 
in every way an enjoyment and one we will ever remember. 

The greatest achievement of the Junior class was that of giving to 
Agnes Scott The Silhouette. When the question of having an Annual 
arose among the students, the Juniors with characteristic zeal took the res- 
ponsibility upon themselves and this little book will always be cherished 
as in a peculiar sense our own.

The Class of '04 

|OMETHING had always been lacking at A. S. I. The Trustees 
felt it, the Faculty felt it, and even the students. Time and 
thought had been given to the investigation of the great mystery, 
but in vain. Dr. Gaines had grown gray over it and Miss Hop- 
kins worried, still they were no nearer the solution. Must the Institute 
enter upon a new century weighted down by such a burden? 

The year 1900 was memorable in the history of A. S. I., because it 
brought with it the solution of the great mystery — the class of '04. At its 
advent Dr. Gaines smiled and rubbed his hands with satisfaction. Miss 
Hopkins drew a long breath of relief. The Faculty agreed with one accord 
that the long-felt want was filled. 

We were sure that we could teach the mighty "Sophs." something, 
and so we started bravely upon our career, bearing with the greatest indif- 
ference their sarcastic remarks. 

We struggled on, surmounting the many difficulties which beset the 
path of Freshmen, and trying in every way to excel the Sophomores and to 
"heap coals of fire on their heads" — deep down in our hearts wanting these 
coals to burn. At last commencement came, and, of course, we were con- 
sidered the most brilliant and studious class of the school. No one but the 
Sophomores denied that — and they would deny anything. 

Realizing the hardships awaiting us, as Sophomores, we returned in 
1901 with the fixed determination "to conquer or to die." 

" Our deep research in mathematics has made even solid geometry seem 
plane, and we have learned that life, here at least, is governed by the tri- 
angle rather than the square." We have also heard Cicero hurl his thun- 
ders at Catiline and have followed with Virgil the fate of the "pious 
.5jneas." In the English Department we have written ourselves into 
immortal fame, and the Aurora is always clamoring for our productions. 
In the laboratory we have learned not only to "earn our salt" but also to 
make it, and that discouragement is an essential part of chemistry. 

Shakespeare has said, " The night is long that never finds a day." The 
night has, indeed, been very long and sometimes starless, but the bright- 
ness and splendor of the placid plains of "Juniordom" and the dizzy heights 
of "Seniordpm" are fast approaching. Historian,

'Twas in the fall a year ago 

When fiist we formed our class. 

But those were not our days of woe, 

For we weren't green as grass. 

Yes, we were jolly, jolly girls, 

And those were happy days. 

And though the time still onward whirls. 

Yet fresh their memory stays. 



Now we're the dignified Sophomores, 

Our trouble has begun 

With Math and Chem and scores 

Of all things under the sun. 

But still we work and toil along ; 

To graduate's our aim ; 

And if we go not too far wrong, 

Perhaps to bring us fame. 

Chorus — 

Hurrah, for the scarlet and cream ! 

Hurrah, for the class supreme! 

Hurrah, for the girls of naughty four 

Hurrah, for all, once more I 



To dear old A. S. I. we're true, 

Long life and health we wish her, 

And may each year bring something new 

Ol life and wealth to bless her. 

But this we ask in future years 

To hold in her esteem 

The class that loved through all its years 

The scarlet and the cream.

Freshman Class History 




[H, liow our curiosity was excited tliat morning in chapel when the 
English teacher requested the Freshmen to meet in the English- 
room at recess ! Freshmen could be seen in groups discussing the 
matter. What on earth could she want? Perhaps she wished to 
speak about our terrible English marks, or perhaps — horrors ! — she was 
going to increase the number of themes a week. At the mere thought of 
either of these things, our hearts fairly stopped. 

When recess came, we filed into the English-room where we found 

Miss L awaiting us. She told us that she had called us together to 

speak to us about a class organization, as all the other classes were very 
much interested in our becoming an organized class — as if we were not able 
to manage that for ourselves. W'e proved to them that "a word to the wise 
is sufficient," for the next week found us an energetic Freshman class with 
Miss Barnett as an honorar}' member, which fact alone insured our success, 
in our estimation. 

We were green — as all Freshmen have been from time immemorial — 
green because we were Freshmen, not Freshmen because we were green. 
Every one expected us to be green, so why disappoint them? Notwith- 
standing our color, we are the wonder of the whole school, and although 
every one tries to look unconcerned when we appear on the scene, envy 
shines through every feature. 

The Seniors look on us most kindly, for they have reached that age 
when the great learn not to despise small things. The Juniors regard us 
in our gaiety and tell us that "things are not what they seem." The 
Sophs — oh, those conceited, scoffing Sophs! — look upon us and pity us, as 
if they would advise us, were it worth their while. Yet, when a Freshman 
meets a Soph and asks her about her Basket-ball Team, the Soph's face 
falls. She will not talk on that subject. 

We have our ups and downs like any other human beings and are too 
young to have much history yet, but just wait until next year when we are 
Sophomores ! then we will have a history — a history in the truest sense of 
the word.

Alumnae Association 



Organization 



PRESIDENT, Anna Irwin Young. VICE-PRESIDENT, Martha Corb Howard. 

SECRETARY, Mary J. Barnktt. 
TREASURER, Annie Jean Gash. 



A. A. A. S. L 




fHE history of seven ^-ears is sufficient to indicate the spirit, character, 
and effectiveness of a working body. In 1895 the graduates of 
Agnes Scott, at that time numbering only nine, determined to form 
an organization which should be helpful to their Alma Mater. 
They provided that all future graduates should be eligible to full mem- 
bership, and that the faculty and those holding certificates of proficiency 
should be invited to associate membership. It is with no small degree of 
warrantable satisfaction, that they look back upon the intervening record. 
It is impossible to sum up a /I the results accomplished, for influence goes 
on and on, and widens as it goes, and can never be gathered back into itself 
and weighed with scale and balance. There are, however, some interesting 
statistics which suggest to the initiated the energy, enthusiasm, persever- 
ance, prayer and faith which have been compressed into them. Far from 
being dull and cold, they are animate and warm, pulsing with the heart- 
throbs of concentrated love. 

Under the auspices of the Alumnae, lectures have been pro\ided and 
receptions gi\'en from time to time. The Association is five times as large 
in numbers as at its inception. Financially the expenditures ha\'e always 
kept within the receipts — $604.93 have been collected and disbursed. The 
incidental expenses have thus been met, the tuition of a day pupil has been 
paid five different years, and the parlors have received some attractive 
additions to their furnishings. Besides this, $560.00 stand to the credit of 
the Association as the beginning of a permanent scholarship fund. We 
have reason to take courage and press on. Let every member resolve to 
urge forward the work. 

In no s|)irit of self-glorification but with thankfulness for what has 
already been accomplished, and with the hope that flagging energies may 
be reinforced and waning interest revived, a banquet has been planned to 
be held during the coming Commencement. An effort has been made to 
reach every member of the Association and a warm response to the invita- 
tions is expected. 

In keeping with the divine injunction, let us put our light on a candle- 
stick, that it may shed its beams on others. We live not for our own 
generation alone, but for the generations that are to come. We reach a 
helping hand to eager searchers after truth, not that they alone may be 
ennobled, but that they may extend the work of beneficence. We look not 
for the esteem of our companions alone, but for the commendation of Him 
who has called us to be his co-laborers. 



The Phenomenon 

' O ! teacher ! vliat's that goin' by ? " 
The child shrieks out with fearsome cry. 
' My child, be calm ! your fears liave o'er ! 
'Tis nothing but a Sophomore." 

' Its head is large and fierce it loolis ; 
\'et all it does outside its books, 
From morn till night and night till morn, 
It blows its class's brazen horn." 



Societies 



The Literary Societies 




HE Mnemosynean Literary Society was organized in 1891 ; the 
Propylcean in May, 1897. The two societies play a very impor- 
tant part in the lives of the students, and have no small share in 
their development. Although the primary purpose of each is the 
mental improvement of its members, the Saturday night meetings are 
occasions for social intercourse as well. The regular weekly programs are 
gotten up and carried out by the girls themsehes. On several occasions, 
however, the members have been treated to lectures from prominent out- 
siders, at which both societies have been present. 

The interest always manifested in the two societies is even greater 
than usual this year on account of a new prize offer. Air. Theodore P. 
Shouts, of Chicago, has inaugurated a prize of $100 to be awarded annually 
to the society which has done the best work during the year. In contesting 
for this prize each society presents three papers, which may be either essays, 
stories, or poems. Besides these the programs and attendance are to be 
taken into consideration. 

Finally, the members of each feel a deep devotion and lo}-alty to their 
society, and they take the greatest pride in furthering its interests. 
Although many of the members will leave the Institute never to return, 
each one will continue to feel that she is as much a part of her society as 
when she helped initiate members after meetings.

Christian Band 

^GNES Scott Christian Band was organized b}' the teachers and 
students of the Institute in 1891, while tlie school was yet in its 
infancy, and has grown along with it, improving as it has im- 
proved, till now this society is doing its best and most earnest work. 

The purpose of the band may be said to be the foundation of the work 
of the whole school, to promote among the students the one thing needful 
for all worthy ends — Christian love. In order to carry out this purpose, 
the working body is divided into committees to whom different parts of the 
work are assigned. The Committee on Committees consists of the officers 
of the society. These officers are the same and perform the same duties as 
in other societies. The Committee on Membership keeps a list of the mem- 
bers of the society, strives to keep them interested in the work, and urges 
outsiders to join. It is the duty of the Committee on Reading Matter to 
encourage the reading of religious literature by distributing, in the different 
rooms on Sunday afternoon, religious periodicals. The Committee on 
Devotional Exercises selects a leader and arranges the programme for the 
regular meetings of the society. The Committee on Christian Work sees 
to the money matters, welcomes strangers, and visits the sick. 

Christian Band meets every Sunday evening immediately after tea, and, 
excepting one evening in each month, when Dr. Gaines addresses the band, 
the meetings are conducted by the teachers and students. One evening in 
every month is devoted to Foreign Missions, when interest is shown not 
only by a study of this cause, but by contributions and earnest prayers for 
the conversion of the world. The greater part of these contributions are 
sent to China for the support of a little Chinese girl in one of our schools 
there. 

This band has done much good in the past ; may it continue to do so 
in the future.

The Mediator 




HE white cow was certainly uninteresting to-day. Slie would 
hardly lift her tail e\'en when Frederica tickled her with a long 
willow switch ; and the switch had a bunch of leaves at the end 
that made it most suitable for tickling. 
Frederica was sitting on a post of the pasture fence, at a discreet distance 
from the house, and hidden from it furthermore by an intervening clump of 
cedar- trees. Slie felt that for several reasons it was wise not to be seen at 
the house just now. Aunt Esther was making peach ] ickle, and as 
Frederica frequently had to help pare the fruit when Aunt Esther did this, 
she had taken time by the forelock this morning and had left shortly after 
breakfast. She had even thought it best to wait until after dinner to dust 
the parlor, for Aunt Esther did start pickling so very early in the day. So 
Frederica had stuffed the dusting cloth in the bottom of the hall clock and 
come out by way of the parlor window. Then another thing that kept her 
from going home just now was that she had dropped her clean suubonnet in 
the mud at the mill-run, and torn her skirt polishing a cedar-tree. All the 
cedar- trees on the place bore marks of Frederica's polishing process. She 
performed it by pulling the hairy bark off the branches till the wood was 
soft and brown, and tlien sliding rapidly up and down like an uneasy lady 
in a side-saddle. After this the limbs were in excellent condition till the 
ne.xt rain. 

But the white cow evidently had small intention of taking any notice of 
little girls that day, so Frederica climbed down from her post on the fence 
and turned towards the woods beyond the mill. She had to walk carefully 
because her shoes and stockings were with the dusting cloth in the tall clock 
case. It was nice and quiet in the woods, and Frederica had ample time to 
think as she strolled along, dragging her feet over the sandy pathway. She 
wondered whether Miss Christine would help Aunt Esther with the peaches 
and talk about interesting things all the time. Miss Christine always seemed 
to like to tell Aunt Esther everything, just as Frederica did. Aunt Esther's 
face and hair were so smooth and unruffled, maybe that was the reason. 
Frederica thought Aunt Esther was like "Elaine the fair, Elaine the lovable," 
though certainly Elaine was very young and Aunt Esther must be very old 

66 



tiow, for Aunt Esther had been taking care of her ever since she couid re- 
member. She thought Miss Christine was just like "Ivvnette," because 
"lightly was her slender nose tip-tilted like the petal of a flower." She 
told Miss Christine this one day and Miss Christine laughed very much and 
said she was a little poet. Frederica didn't see why saying that made her 
a poet, and she wondered if she were to say "Behold thou art fair, my love, 
thou hast doves' eyes," if Miss Christine would call her a little Solomon. 

Poor Miss Christine ! she had seemed to be so cross and unhappy lately, 
and she used to be so jolly. Aunt Esther ought to make her read the Bible 
some, as Frederica had to do after she had been cross or naughty. Aunt 
Esther said if she read her Bible very often it would make her good and 
wise. So Frederica read her Bible in the morning right after breakfast. 
This morning, however, she had read "The Cliarge of the Liglit Brigade" 
instead. She felt reckless to-day. 

The path wound along through the woods and came out near the big 
mill-pond a quarter of a mile from home. As Frederica appro died the 
open place, she saw some one sitting on a log by the water-side fishing. It 
was a strange gentleman, she found on nearer view, and she came and stood 
quite close to him, wishing he would look around, but the gentleman 
seemed very much absorbed in his fishing, for he did not notice Frtdeiica 
at all. 

"There isn't any fishes here," she finally volunteered in a very 
friendly voice. 

The gentleman nearly dropped his rod, he turned so suddenly. 

" Why, hello!" he said, "Where under the sun did yo/t drop from?" 

Frederica wished very much that she hadn'c been naughty and come 
out barefoot. The gentleman seemed to be looking right at her feet. 

" I didn't drop," she faltered, blushing, and trying to stretch down her 
short skirt. " 1 didn't drop. I just came through the woods." 

" Oh ! yes," said the gentleman. " Well, won't you sit down and help 
me fish? " 

" You'd better try at the dam," said Frederica, climbing over the log 
to sit beside him. " Miss Christine said she couldn't catch any fishes 'cept 
at the dam." 

The gentleman gave Frederica such a quick, searching look just here 
that she felt all the smoldering sparks in her conscience burst into flame. 

67 



"I just believe he knows how bad I was and ran away," she thought 
miserably. " He must have read the Bible till he is very wise. It's no use 
pretending, I just might as well tell him right quick," and with a little gasp 
she burst forth — 

" Aunt Esther was going to make peach pickle, and I didn't want to 
peel, and I guess ]\Iiss Christine will help her, so I ran away, but my shoes 
are in the dusting cloth — ." 

Frederica was apt to get confused when she talked fast. 

The gentleman laughed a little, but there was a pucker between his 
eyes. 

" Is your aunt Miss Esther Trevilian? he asked. 

"Oh! yes. Do you know her?", exclaimed Frederica delightedly. 
She felt as if a hundred pounds had been lifted from her by the hasty con- 
fession, and was beaming radiantly. 

"No. That is, not exactly, I have heard of her," replied the gentleman 
vaguely. "Do you live — ah, — do you live quite alone?" he continued. 

"Why Zack and Molly are there always," answered Frederica, "and 
Miss Christine in the summer-time. And it's lots of fun when Miss Chris- 
tine is there, only she is cross now most all the time." 

"Cross!" said the gentleman in a surprised tone. "Cross? why you 
don't seem to have a very high opinion of Miss Christine." 

"Oh ! Oh ! " cried Frederica, leaning forward in earnest effort to cor- 
rect whatever false idea her words had given this curious man as to dear 
Miss Christine's character. "I didn't mean that. She is a virtuous woman, 
and her price is far above rubies. But I think somebody is unkind to her, 
somebody in the city. That is why she is unhappy and not like she used 
to be. Oh, you don't know how nice she is and how good she is" — she 
stopped breathless. 

The young man was listening as if he were quite interested. 

"H'm," he said, "What makes 3-ou think some one is treating her 
badly?" 

"Oh ! because she looks so disappointed when Zack comes from the 
post-office and she doesn't have a letter, and I heard her say to Aunt Esther 
— they knew I was there, so I truly wasn't listening — I heard her say she 
thought he would have written if she hadn't been so horrid, and I think 
it must be a very bad brother like 'Elsie Hardcastle and her Brother, you 

68 



know. But wlien I asked her if her brother wasn't kind to her and if she 
loved him very much, she said I was just a little girl and to go down-stairs." 

Frederica could not help feeling rather aggrieved in recalling this 
repulse given her sympathetic advances. 

The gentleman looked at Frederica in a very kind way indeed, and 
Frederica thought she had never seen anybody with such nice eyes. She 
smiled responsively. 

"I am very much obliged to you for telling me that" said the gentle- 
man. "You see, I'm rather foolish and impatient in the way I treat people 
myself sometimes, and I hope it will do me good." 

After a little pause he went on. 

"Don't you think we are good enough friends to know each other's 
names? Now, I guess )our name is Frederica. Mine is John Gray." 

"Why, how could you know, Mr. John Gray?" exclaimed Frederica, 
dimpling with appreciation of this fresh proof of her new friend's wisdom. 

Mr. John Gray only laughed, and Frederica felt quite mystified. He 
had known Aunt Esther's name too ! 

Mr. John Gray then kept staring at the water for such a \-ery longtime, 
that Frederica felt he must be thinking once more of fishing. 

" Don't you think you'd better go down and try again at the dam?" 
she asked. "You know what I told you about Miss Christine." 

"Why, yes, Frederica," said Mr. John Gray, springing to his feet. " I'm 
going to try again after what you told me." And he laughed in a very- 
merry way. 

Frederica s'.arled to scramble tip too. Tlien she gave a little sudden 
terrified scream and cowered trembling and shuddering on the ground. 
And Mr. John Cjray made a dive like lightning and snatched a horiid 
writhing, hissing something from the grass scarcely a foot from Frederica's 
bare leg and flung it far out into the mill-pond. 

Then he gave a quick ejaculation and clapped his wrist to his mouth. 

Frederica clung to the log and fairly moaned in the agony of her terror. 

" Oh ! he bit you ! " she cried ; " he bit you, and it was because of me. 
Oh ! I have killed you ! What shall I do ! What shall I do !" 

John Gray made haste to lift her up with his free hand, and soothed her 
gently. 

69 



" Don't be so frightened, Frederica," he said. "Wh}-, I'm all right, little 
girl. It isn't going to hurt me at all, and it wasn't a mite your fault. 
Now you run home quick to your Aunt Esther, there's a good girl. Let me 
see you start down the path. I'll be all right. Don't bother one minute 
about me. I'm just going to the blacksmith's for a little while. Run 
along, fast." 

Frederica did run along fast. She ran so very fast that if she hadn't 
been so frightened she must have dropped before, breathless and trembling, 
she at last flung herself into Aunt Esther's arms. 

" Oh ! I have been so wicked," she wailed, "I started with being only 
na-na-naughty when I ran away from the p-peaches and d-d-dusting, but I 
am wicked now and I have slain a man, and the C-Ci-ty is so far away." 

" Whatever is the child talking about ? " exclaimed Aunt Esther. Jl7iat 
city? — slain a man !" 

"Oh ! the City of Re-efuge," sobbed Frederica. "I know he will die. 
He said he wouldn't, but it was a snake, and I know he will, and I will be 
a man-slayer." 

"Try to tell us about it, dear," said Aunt Esther, and Miss Christine 
smoothed back Frederica's hair. 

" It was at the mill-pond," gasped Frederica, still rather sobbingly, 
" and he was fishing, and his name was John Gray, and we were just going 
to the dam because he said he was going to try over again after what I told 
him about Miss Christine ; and then the snake .started to bite me, and he 
grabbed it, and it bit him, and he has gone to the blacksmith's, he said ; and 
he said it wouldn't kill him, but it will, I know" 

" The blacksmith's !" cried Miss Christine, and she ran out of tlie house 
almost as fast as Frederica had come in. 

" Dear, put on a hat," Aunt Esther called after her pleadingly. 

Then Aunt Esther took Frederica up-stairs and made her lie down, and 
bathed her face, and said she had had a shock, and kissed her a great many 
times. 

"Aunt Esther," said Frederica, "I can't think what made me be so 
wicked. Will I really not have to go to a City of Refuge? O, Aunt Esther, 
' I am aweary, aweary, I would that I were dead,' just like Mariana in the 
moated Grange, Aunt Esther." 



"Don't say that, clear, God wouldn't like it," said Aunt Esther. "Voii 
have been naughty, my child, but now you are repentant and we all forgi\e 
you ; so lie quietly, dearie, and go to sleep." 

"It was good of Miss Christine to go so quickly to see about poor ]\Ir. 
John Gray, wasn't it. Aunt Esther?" asked Frederica. 

Yes, dear," said Aunt Esther. 

Then after a little while a joyful voice called from below: "Miss 
Esther, O Miss Esther, can't you come down just a minute?" And Fre- 
derica heard Miss Christine running up the stairs. 

"He is all right," she cried. " He says it is perfectl)- safe now. Where 
is that precious child? Oh, Frederica, dear little Frederica, it was all 
because of you." 

" I know it was, ]\Iiss Christine," said Frederica penitentlv, "and my 
heart was wasted with my woe. But he is going to get well, isn't he? And 
isn't he nice? Is lie going to be your friend too. Miss Christine?" asked 
Frederica. M. B. D.

A Saga of Eventide 



Art wearied, love ? — All tired out from play? 

Wilt rest these little limbs in mother's arms? 

Aha I 'tis but an hour ago since thou 

Didst say, "The night comes on too soon." Yet now 

Hast come to lay thy head on mother's breast. 

And gladly hear herlell thee foolish tales. 

Then nestle close, and listen, Heart's Delight ; 

I'll tell thee how the fairies close ihe day. 

As glowing sunset fades-out in the west. 

The leaders sound their tiny horns; so soft, 

Dear Heart, that thou and 1 would never hear. 

Hut ail their liltle subjects hear the call. 

And soon come trooping in from everywhere, 

From Forests, out from under rocks and leaves. 

They meet together in a shady glen. 

And there await the coming of their queen. 

It is not long before faint music sweet 

Is heard. Then they behold the queen's approach. 

She stands there in her car, a single flow'r 

With violet wheels. She drives her four fire -flies, 

Well harnessed in with twisted spider's web. 

Her people raise a cry of joy and pride; 

And as she passes spread their tiny wings 

And follow close behind. Then on they go. 

And on, and farther on. The moon comes out. 

At last the queen veers 'round her ro)'al car. 

Then all turn back, and through the moonlit woods 

I'hey softly flit ; now slower and more slow. 

And now they reach the glen, and all sink down 

To rest and sleep until the morn, — As thou. 

Mine own, shalt rest — and sleep — until the morn.

The Foolish Virgins 




OW ivhat right had they to go and take our holida)' from us 
this year? It never would have happened when Dr. Tay- 
lor was here ! I just knozv that ' priscy ' Dr. Thome's at 
the bottom of it all, and I call it simply horrid!" 
.-^ "Mean old things!" "Stupid!" "Absolute foolish- 

ness!" "Cruelty to animals!" 

"Ain't it a shame, 
A measly sha-ame," 

chanted a shrill little voice by way of conclusion, as the girls pressed closer 
about the swing. Here sat Alice Hay, the first speaker, and four other lead- 
ing spirits — the Festive Five, they were called — each chattering excitedly 
in concert with the girls who happened to be nearest her. 

Ah ! how righteous was their wrath ! They had sustained a most 
terrible injury. For reasons, best known to themselves, the faculty of 
Engleside Seminary had desecrated a time-honorod custom. Instead of 
meekly signing the annual petition for holiday on the first of April, they 
had firmly declined to affix their signatures to this document. Such mu- 
tiny had been a thing unheard of in that school for the past fifteen years. 

Regarding the cause of their deprivation Alice's venture was quite cor- 
rect ; but her characterization of it was not so good. Whatever else Dr. 
Thorne may have been, he was not what that much-used epithet of the 
school-girl, "priscy," signifies. It is true that during the few months of 
his principality, he had wrought a number of unwelcomed changes in the 
school, for he was a man with many ideas differing from those of liis lenient 
predecessor ; but the reason and justice of these changes, even the girls had 
finally to recognize. But to return to the indignation meeting. 

A silence — not the genuine article, of course, but a fairly good imita- 
tion — had fallen upon the little group. A sure sign of miscliief bre\^ing ! 
Suddenly Ann Tanner, the girl sitting next to Alice, sat up very straight 
and looked intently into the faces before her. 

"Girls," she said impressively, "we must rebel ! " 



"A-a-h!" gasped her audience ecstatically. 

"Yes," she went on quickly, "it's come to that. We must simply show 
the Faculty we Tvon^t be treated like infants! We've a right to that day and 
if they won't give it to us, why — we'll take it ! Sh!" as the clamor began 
to rise again. **Be quiet, girls ! We don't want the others to know about 
it till we've gotten everything planned. Then we'll tell the rest of the 
girls, and make all of them promise to stand by us. Come on up to our 
room right now, all of you." And hopping out of the swing, she and Alice 
ran swiftly across the campus, the other girls swarming after them. 

On the first day of April the sun rose bright and early at Engleside. 
The occupants of the Seminary did not follow his example till some time 
later than was their custom. When the janitor came to wind up the bells 
that marked the events and periods of the day, the key was nowhere to be 
found. So it was only after a very cross set of teachers had gone from 
room to room that the sleeping damsels were roused from their dreams. 

Breakfast was hardly a success — that is, to the teachers. There may 
have been present some who disagreed with them. A series of the most 
remarkable phenomena was observable ; chairs were pulled from under 
tables only after much untying and breaking of strings, and most of the 
napkins refused to be separated from the tablecloths. Then there was tea 
and coffee, which, no matter how much sugared, would no I give up a cer- 
tain bitter taste. But under these and similar discomforts, the student-body 
bore up with praiseworthy fortitude. 

When the meal was fairly begun, and most of the giils had assembled. 
Dr. Thorne rapped on the table for silence, just as if he had an ordinary 
announcement to make. 

"Young ladies," he said, without a trace of irritation in his voice, "I 
merely wish to remind you of something that may have slipped your mem- 
ories. We will have chapel this morning as usual, at 9 o'clock." And 
equally undisturbed did his hearers appear. 

Promptly at 9 the chapel began to fill up, and in a few moments 
teachers and pupils were in their places. After the opening hymn, Dr. 
Thorne rose and began to turn the pages of the big Bible. "As you will see 
from our reference cards, the lesson for this morning is found in Matthew 

74 



XXV : i-ij- The Parable of ihe Foolish Virgins. Let all join in the read- 
ing." And together they went through the story of those unwise young 
women. Then came the prayer, and then — 

"Young ladies," said Dr. Thorne, looking pleasantly down at his 
audience, "we have just before chapel made a most astonishing discovery. 
Would you believe it, every recitation room in the house is locked!" [Looks 
of polite surprise from the young ladies.] " Yes, it is quite true," he went 
on. "At first we were quite puzzled as to what course to pursue. Of one 
thing we were sure, that you must not be deprived of any useful knowledge 
and experience which this day could possibly give you. At last we hit 
upon a plan. As you know, we are fortunate enough to have here two 
large, sheltered verandahs, also several long corridors and passages. We 
have assigned divisions of these to the various teachers ; you will find the 
order of arrangement on the bulletin-board. In each of these divisions I 
have had a chair placed for the teacher. I feel sure that you young ladies 
will not object to standing during recitations. I hope this may prove a 
pleasant and profitable day to you. You are dismissed." 

For a moment the chapel was absolutely still. The girls were literally 
stupefied. The teachers were stnilingly observing the eiTect of the Princi- 
pal's words. 

"You are dismissed," repeated Dr. Thorne, blandly. 

The girls rose with a start, and began to file quietly toward the door. 
A certain little crowd of cronies came last. 

"And five were foolish," murmured Ann in Alice's ear as they passed 
out of the chapel. M. B. J. 



An Errand of Love 




' Enthroned there in a dewy lily stalk. 



The rustling breezes told the midnight hour; 
A screech owl, in her far secluded bower, 
Awoke the echoes of the woods around 
Wliere elves and fairies, in sweet slumber wound, 
Were dreaming of some mischief they might plan 
To wreak upon some unsuspecting man. 
Anon, a silver bugle, low and clear. 
Across the woodland sounded far and near 

And shook the green leaves on the forest trees. 



And forth from all the woodland, at the sound, 
A hundred thousand elves and goblins bound. 
So lightly, swiftly, sped they o'er the sod 
No tender sprig of turf on which they trod 
Was crushed beneath their airy-winged feet, 
While far on o'er the copse they went to meet 
Their bugler-chieftain in the elfin grove. 
At last they halted in a moonlit cove, 

Deep-shadowed in the gloomy, leafy wood. 

76 



Enthroned there in a dewy lily-stalk 
The king and queen of all the elves who walk 
Abroad to plot and alter human fate, 
Encircled by their courtiers, sat in state. 
The goblins settled on the leaves and grass 
And grew as si ent as a nun at mass ; 
They well knew by their rulei's tragic mien 
He did his numerous subjects thus convene 

To speak with them of great and weighty things, 




"And forth from all the woodland at the sound 



At length the king arose with stately grace. 

Glanced 'round upon his mighty elfin race, 

And said, " O brother-spirits of the air. 

There dwelleth in a distant college-hall, 
A studious maid, of youthful years and fair 
As she who caused great Ilia's direful fall. 
And there when all the world's to slumber gone 
She toils and works and frets till early morn 

With books and books and books that have no end. 



Now who among my elves will be her knight. 
And save this lovely maiden from this plight 

Vnd gain renown in every land and clime ?" 
At once a hundred fairy knees were bowed 
Before the lily-throne of their liege-Iord ; 
A hundred fairy voices begged a chance 
To try their fortune with their magic lance — 
Each proving well beyond all doubt that he 
Alone could this poor maid's knight-errant be. 



1 he elf-king lisl'iiing to his chivalrous band 
t'pon his shoulder felt an airy hand, 
And, turning, met with id concealed surprise 
Pan Cupid's little wily, prying eyes. 
At once began the reckless little sprile 
To tell the fairies of his wondrous might 
And power to sway these fickle human hearts, 
Till he had gained by his persuasive arts 

The king's consent to free the luckless maid, 




Thai eve the maiden by her window stood 
And gazed out in a silent pensive mood 
At passers-by along the busy street 
That echoed with the tramp of hurrying feet. 
Sometimes a group of laughing children 

came, 
And now and then a stately gray-haired dame, 
And once a troop of jolly college men 
Paused at the rolling campus' farther end 

And boldly entered the enchanted grounds. 



Just then a naughty littly boy, concealed 
Within a lofty tree-top's lealy shield. 
Let fly a silver arrow from a bow 
Straight to the Maiden's window right below. 
II she was wounded by it no one knew. 
If any one had seen it when it flew 
Her future conduct might have been explained, 
But as it was thev sought to find in vain 
The reason why she threw away her books.

Thine Eyes 



Dear e)'es, sweet eyes, in whose deep depths do lie 
AH untold truths of love's own mystery — 
Ma chcrie, look once again in mine own ; 
Let me not grope in darkness all alone. 



Be thou my guide ; thine eyes shall be my light. 

Thy soul, O chcrie, was to thee God-given, 
And through those dark brown orbs it shines so bright 

A vision of the purity of Heaven.

Only a violet constancy. 

Only a frivolous fancy. 

Only drifted apart. 



Only a jasmine of beauty. 

Only a life moved by duty. 

Only left bleeding there. 



Only a rose ihat is scattered, 
Only a dream that is shattered, 
Only a broken heart.

A Lullaby 

(Dedicated to Mr. Davis.) 

Sweet and low, sweet and low, ( !) 

Whistle of A S. I. 
Slow, slow, shriek and blow 

Whistle of A. S. I. 
Out of the power-house you flow 
Forcing some angry girls, we know, 

Back to their rooms to hie, 
While you shriekingly, while you piercingly blow. 



A Few Sensible Re narks 



Yoii are now in a jollier court, 
Here mirth and laughter's our fort ; 

May j'our time be repaid 

By the hits we have made, 
Till you're glad you've come to this court. 



There are times when Miss H. says "Girls,' 
In this noise my head simply whirls. 

If the sounds in the hall 

Do not cease, I must call 
Dr G. to come pull out your curls." 



A certain professor said, " How 

Can I find who doth make such a row 

On m}' pianos most dear !" 

Had he caught her I fear 
She'd not have been living till now. 



There was once a young lady from Deem, 
Who had daily to write a short theme. 

This torture she stood 

As long as she coidd, 
Then expired with a last piercing scream. 





I^UST outside a little village of great antiquity, at the end of a 
Laue of Hardie Burcli trees, arise the Brown, moss-grown turrets 
of the castle of Gaines. It is a fortress consisting of a large Stone 
tower, surrounded by smaller buildings and encircled by an Apple- 
yard of great size. One lone Chick and two Peacocks are the only inhabi- 
tants of this yard. A Wolf and Lupo hover near, awaiting an opportunity 
to spring upon these unfortunate creatures, which catastrophe is averted by 
three Hunters who constantly keep guard upon the battlements. 

Outside the wall stretch the vast Akers of an old Duke, a valiant Scot 
and the lord of the castle. In one of the fields a Farmer is raking Hay. 
On the grassy slope of a Hill in an expanse of Green meadow-land, a 
Shepherd (ess) is tending her Wooley flock. A little to the Wright the 
Whitesides of a mill gleam in the sunshine ; the jolly Miller is standing in 
the door, while Sheetz of water pour over the mill-dam. At the huge iron 
gate you Meet A Barker, the guardian of the fortress, a Good old dog not 
really so fierce as he looks. 

Inside the castle is a great banquetting Hall, communicating with other 
apartments and having at each end immense fireplaces with the Cranes 
hano-ing in them. The old Duke is now left alone with his two Young 
grandchildren, a Win (some) lass and a Bonnie Laddie. Most of his retain- 
ers have left him. Only the Baker, the Butler, the Cook, the Brewer and 
the Smith remain faithful. 

During the long twilight (for in that country it is Lyt tel late in the 



evening), the old man and his grandchildren often sit aronnd the hnge fire- 
place piled high with logs of Wood, while the grandfather relates stories of 
former days. 

One stormy night, as the West wind howled around the walls and the 
fire sent out its ruddy glow, lighting up the antique old room with its relics 
of the past; the tall silver Candler (labra), the trusty sword of the aged 
warrior, scarred and Gash(ed) by many a conflict, and his spear with its 
Sharp and glittering point, the Duke sat as usual with his grandchildren at 
his knee. 

Pointing to two curiously carved buckles, he said to his grandson : 
" Laddie, you must ever cherish these, for they Arbuckles which your great 
grandfather won at a tournament. O, that was a Gloer(ious) day in the 
times of spruce King George, when he rode forth on his Black charger and 
I by his side with our trusty squire Davis. On the way we met two gallant 
knights. Sir Stephen and Sir Maclean, going to the tournament to Winn 
the favor of the fair ladies of the faculty, and Wright valiantly did these 
two brave knights fight Daily in this tournament. They were accompanied 
by their attendants, who were your cousins — your Uncle Hugh's son, your 
Uncle Donald's son, your Uncle Tom's son, your Uncle John's son and 
your Uncle Robert's son. That was the day when I was wounded nigli unto 
death (poor old man, if he could only have been sent to the Hopkins), and — " 

Just then the Peel of the Curfew sounded and the story was interrupted 
by Cora, the children's nurse, appearing in the door. 

" Land a Massie, chilen, it's time you was in bed." 

"O Shaw, Cora, the whistle hasn't blown yet," cried Laddie. 

"There, there, children," remarked their grandfather, "run along to 
bed and sleep till yon are awakened by the crowing of the Cox ; and if 
the Morrow is Farrar, we will finish our story when we go for our walk."

The Olympic Council 



I sing of the Council Olympic, assembled one mid-winter night. 

Great Jove sat enthroned in the arm-chair, a great and an awe-filling view, 

And nearby sat Juno, the white-armed, who ruled all the circle with grace, 

Minerva, Proserpina, Vesta (the household goddess of the land). 

And Ceres was seen, pondering deeply, in German she's thinking I ween, 

" If a worm has a cerebellum, how much does a June-bug know? " 

The sou of fair Maia debated with the stately Euterpe, 

" If a cat sings six notes to a minute, how much of a tune will that be? " 

Then Jupiter called them to order, and the roll Roma started to read, 

When lo ! nor Aurora, nor \'enus, nor Diana answered the call. 

Great Jove looked over his glasses, "Now where can they be? " he said. 

"If convenient will some of the council please hasten and go out and see?" 

iMinerva, wise, offered to find them. She searched all the haunts of men, 

And found them at last, friends, destroying about thirty eggs of a hen. 

They left them at Jupiter's call, but their hearts they were heavy and sad. 

They knew that before they returned those eggs would be burnt to a coal. 

They marched in and all took their places. The council proceeded to work. 

Of a sudden, prepare, friends, 'twas startling, it ne\-er had happened before. 

The door opened wide, j'oung Apollo came swiftly into the room. 

'Twas Juno he wanted to see, for the council he always had shirked. 

Jove stared in amaze for a moment, then said, " Sir, please have a seat. 

We're glad )-ou have come. I believe, sir, the very first time in three 

months." 
And then, in the midst of the council, a wailing was swept through thin air. 
Mixed with bloodthirsty barks from Cerberus. They rushed to the window 

to see. 
'Twas naught but a poor youth whom Charon had allowed to escape from 

the car. 
And wander up in the direction of the brick-walk that led to the house. 
Cerberus had had quite a dinner from off of his shoulder before 

Il6 



They could rescue the youth from his clutches, aud wildly the poor lad 

did wail, 
"They will call me 'the!\Liu with the Ho(l)e," aud straightway his hair 

did assail. 
But Medea fixed back his shoulder quite uew with a uice piece of Bacon. 
The council once more took their seats and began to discuss the reports 
Of the maidens who dwelt near Olympus. 

The council was very harmonious, until Goddess Roma complained 
That \'ulcan talked quite too often, she thought it was her time again. 
\'ulcan breathed hard and fast, mighty blast of wrath and of ire and 

contended, 
That if he but thus desired, he would talk till the meeting was ended. 
Jove called them to order, but Vulcan's heat rose to such height that a flask 
Of explosive he had in his pocket went off with a terrible blast. 
And the council was quickly resolved into naught but thin air aud some 

smoke.

A. S. L Pharmacy 



Stupidity. — Take one trig., one " Eysenbach," six "3000 words," four 
" chardenals," six rhetorics, and as many "Latin proses" as are available. 
Pile up rather loosely. Saturate with naphtha, or any other substance of 
like nature. Apply a match and look calmly on. And if you don't see 
stars and at least the tails of comets it is only because there is no hidden 
brilliancy to be discovered in book lore. 

A Beauty Lotion. — Take seven parts of burnt ochre to three of cerulean 
blue ; two of magnetic oxide of iron to six of ammonium chloride ; one of sul- 
phate of magnesium to six of crude diamond; seven of thermo-magnetic 
chloride of potassium to six of filtered chloride of water ; five of electro- 
magnetic acid to thirteen of violet phosphate. Apply to the face at regular 
intervals. (Any of the above ingredients may be had on application to Dr. 
Arbuckle at the laboratory.) 

To Improve One's Disposition. — Come down too late for chapel with a 
fourth of your lessons weighting down your brain and the remaining part 
burdening your arms. Before 9 o'clock lose half your books. Hunt them 
high and low till your hands are black with the accumulated dust of unused 
desks and shelves. Then just at the time for your written lesson in math, 
lend the only pencil you have to some one \vho is too conscientious ever to 
return it. Forget to study the last part of your Bible lesson, and don't fail 
to say so at recitation. Later on use potassium chloride in a two-hour ex- 
periment which calls for ammonium chloride. Finally work three hours on 
a trig, problem to find at last that your mistake was in taking the log of A 
in the .'in column instead of the Cos. 

Idleness —To a solemn compact to sweep your room once a month add 
a great reputation for arranging the hair and remembering what the history 
lesson is. Mix with this a tangible announcement of your ability in the 
fine art of candy-making. Flavor with an extremely obliging disposition. 

Disappointments . — Discard all expectations. 

Homesickness. — Go and get a "nintitriate " friend. 

Giddiness. — No prescription. But every one is advised to be rid of it 
ere she enters these enchanted halls. 

Laziness before Breakfast. — Smell a rat. 

To Remedy a Smiling Countenance. — Take French. 

To Learn to Love. — Ask Dassa and Miss' Miller. 

To Learn to Smile. — Practice greeting Juliet. 

To Cultivate a Graceful., Spontaneous Movement of the Arms. — Watch 
the cars on the Blue Line on Sunday afternoon.

Problems 

M. B. J. — In answer to 5001' inquiry concerning proper costume for 
breakfast, I reply, that a coat biittoning close up to the neck, worn with a 
slock collar, is quite the thing this season. The skirt worn with this may 
or may not be of the same material as the jacket — usually it is not. 

N. S. & B. Mc. — Yes, thej- often assemble around the church gate, and 
I know it is very annoying to you. Walk gracefully on in a dignified man- 
ner and pay no attention whatever to them. 

S. Iv. — Quite the thing for foot-wear on cold, rainy days when you 
make use of your shortest walking-skirt, are high-heeled opera slippers. 

A girl fifteen years old should wear a pompadour at least ten inches high. 

E. Mc. — You should always bid your friend good-bye at the drawing- 
room door. Under no circumstances is it allowable to accompany him to 
the gate and bid him a fond adieu in view of the spectators who might be 
on the campus. 

I would discourage correspondence between school-girls and boys. 

B. J. — Yes, it is always worn on the third finger of the left hand. 

I would advise the young ladies to invite to their receptions only those 
young gentlemen who are of sufficient age to be allowed to come without a 
chapercM. 

O. & S. — A sweet disposition is absolutely essential if a young girl 
wishes to be attractive. You should strive to be always pleasant even to 
those of your own household, with whom you come in contact every day. 

D. S. — A young man certainly deserves a pleasant "Thank you," for 
picking up your bundle, e\-en if he is not the one you intended should pick 
it up when you dropped it. 

J. C. — A kind, sisterly manner on your part will do much to bind up 
his broken heart. 

Jockey. — Perhaps you are suffering from spring fever. Try an hour's 
ride on your best "pony" daily. It is advisable to take these rides entirely 
alone. 

For information on any other subjects about which the young ladies 
have asked, " they will please remain after prayers. ' '

' The Unknown Quantity." 




Mr. Donald Fraser and Miss Agnes Scott. 



(Not) As Ithers See Us 

From Five A.M. Until Ten P.M. 

<iy^,^ »HOSE fortunate people who have either graduated, or at least 

^r\,»-^ " quituated," are forever saying, "How I wish I were a school- 

^ \f) ^k girl again !" If it were merely a matter of choice, I'm sure 

^J-^ they would find plenty of toiling, laboring girls who would 

\ willingly exchange lots with them. 

Call them "the happiest days of jour life," indeed ! I'm sure nothing 
is more pleasant than to work from seven p.m. to nine p.m. and from five 
A.M. to seven a.m. , on five Trig, problems and then go to class the next morn- 
ing and report, "I've just gotten three, Miss Y , but I think I could get 

them all if I just had a h'//le more time." 

You always feel in a very pleasant humor, too, when Miss M hands 

back your Latin Prose Book. It is more highly colored than when it was 
handed in — "black and white and red all over," truly describes its general 
appearance. 

All this is bad enough, but it is worse still to go out to the laboratory, 

say at one o'clock, and start an experiment which Dr. A says you can 

easily finish by the two o'clock bell. Two o'clock comes, you rush in late 
to dinner, hurry back, and at four-thirty, tired, and disgusted at the loss of 
precious time, you put up the old apparatus, and joyfully think of the five 
hard lessons to be learned for the next day. 

One has to experience the maddening pleasure of writing themes to 
know what true happiness is — it is something that words cannot describe 

nor the mind conceive of. It is a peculiar sensation, too, when Miss L 

reads your theme in class, and exposes all you shortcomings and un- 
heard-of blunders to the critical comments of all your classmates. 

After all, that old whistle, harsh and discordant as it is, seems almost 
melodious when, at a quarter of ten, it bids you say good-night to your 
Psychology, Logic, Latin, French, History, or whatever is your companion 
for the evening. E. G. 

{Aurora^ Jaruiary, igo2i)

A Class Pin 

"Oh, they are perfect!}- beautiful!" "Aren't they dear?" and other 
such expressions came from a group of merrj' Sophomores who stood 
together looking into a box. The long-looked-for class pins had come. 

"And to think they belong to us! Girls, if any one has to drop out, 
let's have her forfeit her pin. (.)f course we will pay her for it," proposed 
Ellen Gray. 

"Let's do," responded the whole group at once. 

Then ting-a-ling rang the recess bell, and the girls separated. 

The school year passed — the summer passed, and still, as a Freshman 
jokingly remarked, 

" Ellen has her little pin, 

It's made of gold (I'm told), 

And everywhere that Ellen goes 

There goes that pin of gold." 

And now as the Junior sits under a tree on the lawn, the same little pin 
shines from the knot of silk on her waist. But she is so tired this evening, 
perhaps Juniors have harder work. Her head rests against the tree and her 
eyes are closed. 

"Well, Ellen," her father seemed to be saving to her, "we think it will 
be better for you to go to Mrs. Simmon's and leave Agnes Scott." 

" Oh, papa !" and tears came to her eyes. 

"Now, dear, don't argue the matter." 

"But, papa, my pin — I'll have to gi\'e it up !" 

Ellen's eyes flew open, as a peal of laughter sounded on her ears and a 
merry voice called to her. 

" Hello, there, Ellen ! Don't hold j'our pin so tight. Nobody wants 
to steal it !" 

But Ellen only held the pin clo.ser in her hand. 

"Oh, Mary," she said, "I've had such an c7 a'/)// dream."

Behind the Sigfn 

"Please don't knock." The above sign, flauntingly conspicuous upon 
tlie door of No. 69, makes the passers-by pause curiously, wondering what 
the new girl can be doing behind that mysteriously closed door. But you 
and I are privileged characters. We knock above the sign and enter. Bare 
walls confront us. An open trunk stands by a window. The floor is strewn 
with every imaginable article of a school girl's wardrobe, from afternoon 
gowns to tennis rackets. The table is littered with a motley assortment of 
books. Tennyson and Wordsworth are elbowed aside by Cfcsar's Commenta- 
ries and Wentworth's Algebra ; a dainty blue and gold set of Ruskin is all 
but hidden by an enormous green dictionary. We turn toward the dresser. 
Here, dainty, useless toilet articles are almost hidden beneath a rainbow 
heap of ribbons. Numberless photographs lie ignominiously, face down- 
ward, in every conceivable place, and framed pictures are stacked on floor 
and chairs. On the bed in the corner, in a crumpled heap, lies the owner 
of it all, the new girl, miserable victim of the old complaint. We draw 
nearer, but she does not see us. Her swollen eyes are looking far beyond 
the tumbled room, far beyond the spreading campus. Softly we turn away. 
We may not enter there. M. W. 

{Aia'ora, Novemher^ igoi.) 

The School Girl's Clock 

Oh, the school girl's clock — if it could only speak, what wonders it could 
tell ! With its round jolly face it stands on the mantel and ticks calmly on 
through all the ups and downs of a school girl's life. When she gazes 
frantically up at it and sees she has only ten minutes more to learn that awful 
lesson, it smiles at her encouragingly, still keeping up its steady tick-tick, 
tick-tick, as its hands creep slowly around. 

Although this little clock has such a serene countenance it is very 
strict in the performance of its duty. About five o'clock on a frosty morn- 
ing it goes off with a great whirring and jangling just at the time for which 
the brave girl set it the night before. She lies for several minutes half asleep, 
waiting for it to stop, but it perseveres. At last in desperation she seizes it 
and bxiries it under the bed-clothes where it continues its admonitions, in 
muffled tones for several minutes longer. 

The ne.xt thing it knows of the outside world, it is being dragged from 
its grave and hears a sleepy voice cry: "Why, I must have gone back to 
sleep ! It's a quarter to seven and there is the rising-bell "
